Home Organization Favorites

Home Organization Favorites

Major nesting mode happening over here and I just cannot. stop. organizing. It brings me such joy to open a drawer or closet and have it perfectly organized and clean. Are all spaces in my house like that? HA far from it but today I’m sharing out my favorite home organization pieces, all from The Container Store!

iDESIGN Affixx Adhesive Organizer Bin
iDesign Linus Divided Lazy Susans
The Home Edit Lazy Susan
Marie Kondo Narrow In-Drawer Knife Organizer
  • iDesign Affixx Adhesive Organizer Bins: I use my bin for storing dishwasher pods (it’s hanging from the inside of our kitchen sink!). There are SO many uses for this clear, strong bin though (spices, cosmetics, frequently used items, etc) This is one of my favorite storage hacks!
  • Divided Lazy Susans: Again, SOOO many ways to use this. I have these divided lazy susans in my fridge, pantry, and playroom! We use them to store snacks in the fridge/pantry and art supplies in the playroom. It’s so convenient for tight spaces since it spins and you can easily access whatever is stored inside!
  • The Home Edit by iDesign 9″ Lazy Susan: I just can’t get enough of lazy susans lol! But this one is great for storing oils in the kitchen and bath necessities. It fits perfectly in our corner drawer in our kitchen.
  • Marie Kondo Narrow In-Drawer Knife Organizer: This was a recent purchase (I needed it for my own mentality) to get everything off of my kitchen counters. Love that this piece fits inside a drawer and is a safe way to store knives (and keep them sharp!).
Card Keeper
Acrylic Risers
Battery Organizer
Drawer Organizers
  • Card Keeper: I’m a sucker for cards and when I see a cute or funny one at Target I’ll buy it and save it. This is the perfect way organize all your cards (greeting, birthday, thinking of you, etc). I also love to tabbed dividers and keep special cards that were given to me here. *see below pic
  • Acrylic Risers: Another thing that can be used in so many ways! I have these under our bathroom sink and in Kylie’s closet (as shoe display/storage). Another great purchase for small spaces to maximize the area.
  • Battery Organizer: Anyone with kids knows how important it is to always have extra batteries on hand! I love that this one has organized spaces so you can see the size and easily access them in the moment.
  • Drawer Organizers: We have these in our kitchen and bathrooms. They are great for keeping drawers organized that have a tendency to get cluttered.

Happy organizing!!

Kitchen Favorites

Kitchen Favorites

Today we are rounding up our all time favorite kitchen items. Being in quarantine, we have been spending lots of time in the kitchen. We love nothing more than a clean, organized, kitchen space and all of these items make us so happy! We tried to keep this list at around $100 and budget friendly!

This Nambe salad bowl (pictured above) is not only gorgeous it’s also extremely functional when hosting groups. We love serving any type of salad in this bowl and have gotten so many compliments on it. This would make a great gift for the upcoming holidays, too!

This Amanda Lindroth Island Wrapped Pitcher is another favorite around here. It works well when serving mimosas at breakfast, water or iced tea for lunch, and a margarita on the rocks with dinner! Amanda Lindroth also sells matching glassware as well as other pitcher options, too. Another great gift idea for someone who loves to host!

Additional favorites include:

  • This over-the-sink drying rack has been a game changer. It’s perfect for those who have limited counter space available.
  • We display this Lazy Susan in the middle of our island and love it when guests are over. I’ve done everything from a charcuterie board to basic dips on this Lazy Susan!
  • Another Lazy Susan but for storage and organization! We have one of these in the fridge and another in the pantry. It’s perfect for snacks but also makes my heart happy because #organization
  • Dish and hand towels are of course a necessity and while there are so many to choose from our favorites are: Uncommon James and Amazon
  • This all in one slow cooker from Williams Sonoma is top 3 things used in the kitchen (obsessed with the browning feature!) and our favorite instant pot is on sale!

What are your favorite kitchen items? Let us know in the comments!

Favorite Booties

With fall in full swing here in Chicago, we figured we would round up some of our favorite booties. We wear booties with everything in the fall and love how versatile they are. They are some of the most comfortable shoes that we own. We love the fact that no matter the outfit- heel or no heel – booties will always completely elevate the look. Below we’ve rounded up some of our favorite booties below!

1. Lielle Bootie – such a classic

Rompers & Jumpsuits

Rompers & Jumpsuits

We both love a good romper in the summer, and love how they can transition into early fall by layering with a sweater or jacket! And late in the summer we have jumpsuits on a regular rotation. Now that we are both back to work (from home) after the summer off, we know that we will be living in there rompers & jumpsuits.. and will be investing in a couple more!

This gray Zella jumpsuit us comfortable and cute! It is a bit heavier than the Vici one, so it would be great throughout the entire fall season. I love how this jumpsuit gives me the ability to be comfortable but still look put together. With the top being a bit on the looser side, I typically wear a cute bralette underneath! Mine is currently unavailable but I am linking similar ones here and here.

This romper has been on repeat this past summer. This exact romper is no longer available but I purchased it on amazon and have found a couple similar rompers. This one is a similar color to my charcoal gray romper. I love how this one has a more polished and dressed up feel, but is also as comfortable as the rest. And this one has SO many different colors and patterns, there is bound to be one that everyone likes!

This last romper is like butter, the softest and most comfortable romper there is. It is a great look for lounging around the house, working from home, or grabbing lunch with a girlfriend. This super soft and stretchy material is really a dream to wear! Pink Lily is one of the places that we often like to shop at and here are a couple more of our favorite rompers from there – the cutest tie dye romper and animal print is always a win in my book!

This black jumpsuit is from Vici. This jumpsuit is super lightweight, making it s perfect transition piece from summer into fall. I love how the waistband is a functional drawstring. And you can easily wear the pant leg at a cropped length or a full length. Although I love both looks, I typically go for the full length pant. This exact jumpsuit is almost sold out but Vici as SO many similar options linked here, here, and here.

Biker Shorts

Biker Shorts

We are a little late to this more recent trend and we wish we would have jumped on board at the beginning! Ever since buying our first pair a couple weeks ago, we have been wearing them non-stop. At first we were not super comfortable wearing them with much other than for going to the gym. But once we started getting used to them we started being a bit more adventurous (at least as adventurous as we get with fashion) with how we style them. If you haven’t jumped on this biker shorts bandwagon yet, jump on now – better late than never. We promise you, you won’t regret it.

Here are a couple different ways that we like to style our biker shorts: with a bodysuit, with an oversized sweatshirt, with an off the shoulder top, with an oversized tee, with workout apparel. Certainly there are a number of other ways to wear them but these looks have been our go-to. Which look is your favorite? Let us know in the comments!

Our Favorite Tennis Outfits

Tennis outfits are something that we wear on the regular… not just to play tennis too!

They are a great way to look put together while chasing the kids around, running errands, or actually working out!

We have rounded up some of our top picks for tennis apparel below. Let us know which would be your pick.

Cupshe
We love this brand! The swimwear at Cupshe is not only adorable and high quality, but amazingly priced. All bathing suits are under $35, you can’t beat that. In addition, Cupshe has fabulous customer service. When buying anything online, great customer service is a necessity. We’ve looked through and have found a handful of one pieces, bikinis, and coverups. The cupshe site has so many adorable options, it was hard to narrow it down!

Pink Lily
Another brand we love to get swimwear from is Pink Lily. They have a number of different styles of bathing suits and even more color & pattern options when you decide on the style you like! For the bikinis, you buy the top and bottom separately – so if you are in need of two different sizes then this is ideal for you.
